upstate new york and if lake ontario. that looks like it's going to bypass to the north. there had been concern that it might drop a little further south. let me show you what we expect in the next few hours. on future weather you'll notice these little speckles but this is highly isolated. a stray shower or thundershower is all we get throughout the rest of the afternoon to help cool off a couple of neighborhoods. now, here's some pretty heavy thunderstorms that will roll through right across that new york-connecticut state border here and out toward long island. that's the general expectation for the placement. if it drops a little further south maybe those of you traveling i80 or 78 could get in on that toward nightfall so keep that in mind but with that many said most of us are just going to bake away in the sunshine and the heat through the rest of the day and even overnight you don't really get much relief. here's where we currently stand. we showed you the feels-like values earlier in the broadcast. these are the actual air temperatures. you can't go by this, you have to factor in the humidity but this is at least giving you a sense of where we stand. low 90's up and down i'm 95
factoring in the humidity it feels hotter but we expect to hit 96 degrees at the airport. let's talk about how it feels out there and what you want to be looking for when it comes to heat illness when it comes to exhaustion do you feel dizzy or faint excessive sweating rapid pulse or clammy skin. get to the air conditioner. find a way to stay cool. drink lofts water. on the flip side a little bit more severe, a bad headache, no sweating, hot dry skin, nausea and unconsciousness. if you see any of these symptoms in anyone or feel them yourself call 911. that could be a sign of heat stroke and we really want to you take care of yourself its not like we've never seen this kind of heat before, this is typical over the course of any given summer in philadelphia but these are one of the -- this is one of those days and tomorrow as well where you just need to be extra cognizant. 71 is count dewpoint. that's high -- current dewpoint. it's high out there and bordering on unsir rabble depending on your location with dewpoints climbing higher
in southern new jersey. there's a lot of health impacts with this heat today especially if you fall in that sensitive category. children, elderly asthma, anything like that. this is going to be a bothersome stagnant air mass for you. look at the hundreds of umbrellas lining this beach. i love seeing this because it is all in all a great beach day perfect excuse to jump in the ways but man that sun is vicious so i'm glad to see that people are taking care of themselves and making sure of course if you're going to head out this afternoon that you lather on that sunblock. as we look ahead in the eyewitness weather seven day, the 90's keep on going. you'll see spotty thunderstorms fire up tomorrow as well and over the course of the weekend perhaps they're a little bit more widespread. i'm thinking primarily p.m. hours of saturday. any time sunday or monday for that matter. but no day is a washout per se and then deep breath rahel, the release finally comes. 82 degrees going to feel like it might as well be january come tuesday but we finally
break the worst of it. >> i don't normally look past the weekend i'm normally looking toward the weekend but i'm going wait for tuesday. >> i can completely understand. >> thank you. >> but if you do get out today, here's something fun to do for the whole family. look no further than the oval plus. the summer program is back for it's fifth season along philadelphia's eakins oval. in addition to interactive games an beer garden this year visitors can get lost in a maze maybe play mini golf. the oval plus is open wednesdays through sunday many sundays until august 20th.
